    Hello folks,
    I had a batch of 28mm figures from Eureka tha ti have order sometime ago and yesterday decided to give them some attention rather than keep them in a box.
    I am paintimg them as grenadiers of the Regime t Royal Rousillon as they would have appeared in 1791, when they Army was still royal and look smart rather than a bunch of ragged and high spirited teenagers.
    For the uniform is going to be a white coat with crimson lapels and cuffs.
    I really don't know how many figures i will make, for now i am just working on these 4, perhaps i will make a company of 20 or more, including fusiliers in the 1791 casque.
    Cheers 20170721_190409.jpg 20170721_200138.jpg

    Stop it Keith Daniel will have us painting from this period ...Oh ...I am ...LOL


    Agree a nice choice of colours ..what I like particularly is the way the "wizard of the whites"can get variation in colours ...no matter what they are ....uniform or facings ...

    Carry on Daniel ...nice pom-poms and curls by the way

    Following right alongside Keith ...get the BBQ going ....
